The actress who played Lois Lane in the original "Superman" movies isn't fazed that her comic book counterpart is no longer dating the Man of Steel -- telling TMZ, "Maybe Lois should get a dog!"


62-year-old Margot Kidder tells us, a furry, four-legged companion would be less work for the Daily Planet reporter ... explaining, "They are much easier than men."

TMZ broke the story ... DC Comics is rebooting the Superman comic book storyline in September -- and Lois will NOT be dating Superman.

Considering the amount of trouble Lois seems to get into ... let's hope her dog is Lassie.
